“Xiaomi prides itself on embracing and leading smartphone innovation through its popular line of Mi devices. A license from Qualcomm will play an important role in helping us bring the newest and most innovative products to our growing customer base,” Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, said in a joint statement.

The royalties payable by Xiaomi are consistent with the terms of the rectification plan submitted by Qualcomm to China’s National Reform and Development Commission.

“Qualcomm is committed to the success of its partners in China as they continue to grow their businesses and we are pleased to reach this new agreement with Xiaomi. We work closely with our partners, such as Xiaomi, to push the boundaries of what’s possible and drive the advancement of the mobile industry,” said Derek Aberle, President of Qualcomm Incorporated.
